Beginning March 31, The Tyee will be launching their exclusive weekend lecture and workshop series “Master Classes.” Hosted at The Tyee’s offices with some heavy hitting experts at the helm, this programming promises to be quite unlike your typical snore inducing power point presentation. Each class will have lesson plans being directly influenced by the individuals who register through class room Q&A, and feedback. These immersive sessions allow participants to become closely acquainted with a leader in their field, and aim to provide an inspired (and catered) classroom for beginners as well as professionals.
The very best feature of these workshops? MagsBC would like to help you attend. Two individuals from the collective, either magazine staff or a regular contributor to a member publication, will be offered 50% off the registration fee to a class in the series. Please contact Sylvia Skene, Executive Director, Magazine Association of BC if you’re interested and would like more details: firstname.lastname@example.org.
